Being the serious studious type, I have read many books by expats as I evaluate moving to Costa Rica. This book was well worth reading.
It is down-to-earth and practical.
It is honest, but able to see and share humor.
I will be reading and rereading it as I move toward my own decision point.

My chief reservation is that (since it was copyrighted 2010), the cost numbers it refers to are hard to trust. An updated edition would be well worth additional investment as far as I am concerned.

The last pages refer to projected later works by the same author. I will be looking for those (and hope they materialized).

I felt that this book was really useful for anyone who is considering a move to Costa Rica. Like some of the other reviewers, I read the book "Happier than a Billionaire" and then decided to research as much as I could about the subject. This is the third book I have purchased on moving to Costa Rica.

I bought the paperback edition. As for book quality, there were some minor issues-- the book doesn't look like it was professionally formatted. The kerning is way off in some places, and none of the text is hyphenated anywhere, which results in some of the sentences SPACED.... LIKE.... THIS....

Other than that, though, the book looks carefully edited and I didn't see any major typos or grammar errors, which are a major pet peeve of mine.

Next, the author focuses a huge portion of the book on packing and moving. It wasn't until I read some of the reviews that I realized that the author is actually involved with a moving company, which, in my opinion, does affect the neutrality of the book. The author is adamant that shipping your furniture and other belongings is essential to enjoying your life in Costa Rica, and I thought that was an exaggeration. My husband and I have lived overseas (both in Mexico and in Europe) and we never felt "incredibly uncomfortable" because we didn't have our American-style furniture or appliances with us. The section dragged on and on, with details about how to pack, what boxes to use, etc, etc.

The information on shipping your car was very good, and that section should be expanded. If we move, we will probably not ship our housewares, but we will be shipping our car. There are enough horror stories in the books I've read that it seems like a responsible idea.

I wish there was more information on how to obtain Costa Rican residency; it seems like a smart thing to do, rather than having to leave the country every 90 days.

That being said, the other information was very useful. And I appreciated that the author explained multiple instances where couples had decided to make the move without really thinking it through, and then ended up spending thousands to return back to the states. So she doesn't sugar-coat the experience, and that's more important for the reader to understand the positives and the negatives of this kind of move.

and because I enjoyed it I'm giving it five stars even though I agree it's rather incomplete, but incomplete and readable and accurate and providing helpful information is not bad. I really wish the author had published the planned other volumes on "Mainers in Costa Rica" because the books as she described them would have given more information about their experiences once they got to Costa Rica and I would be very much interested.

She never seems to consider that many people moving to Costa Rica might not want to buy at all, but would prefer to rent permanently!!

I have read many books on Costa Rica and have visited there once. In fact we have just planned a visit to Costa Rica in the fall to determine if we want to retire in that country. I found this book extremly useful in it's detail and honest approach to moving there. Arden was honest in her opinions and did not surgar coat this complex process of moving to a foreign country. However if you follow her advice, I'm sure the experience will be easier learning from her personal experiences and her professional advice.

I read the entire book in three days, and was always interested to find out what was on the next page. In additon to her own story of the journey to Costa Rica, there were examples of other expats that her preceded her. I found the resource guides listed in the book very useful enabling me to further my knowledge of Costa Rican life for an expat.

Lastly I appreciated that she ended the book with stories of some expats who lived for a time in Costa Rica, and for their own reasons (stated in their own words) why they went back to the U.S.

This illustrated that this type of move is not for everyone, and not to be taken lightly. However if you have done your research, communicated with people down there, taken a "due dilligence" tour, follow her advice in the book, then you enter this process with your eyes wide open and have a better chance for success.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone contemplating moving to Costa Rica!!

This was the first book I read about the ins and outs, good and bad, about a move to Costa Rica and I'm glad I picked this one. Humorous and packed full of useful, practical advice about evaluating the country and especially about what to bring (basically EVERYTHING in your house) when you do move. It's not a substitute for visiting the country and taking tours, but it's good background start. Even though she and her husband did not follow the advice of her tour guide, and bought land on the first trip, she presents what followed, ups and downs, in an easy-to-read format that will help you begin the evaluation for yourself. Good Luck. We are taking our first tour in January 2013 and hope to meet the author then.
